I was expecting this tea to be super rocky and mineraly like other wuyi oolongs I’ve had. It has a nice mineral taste to it but is not as strong as I thought it would be. It has sweet vegetal notes and a sweetness to it that reminds me of honey.

This tea was gone so fast. It’s sooo good. It has a nice deep dark chocolate flavor with light milk chocolate notes. It has a nutty note to it. This tea reminds me of a candy bar. I love it!

Had this one for breakfast and it made me crave pancakes… I added a touch of maple syrup to give it an extra kick and it was awesome! I can still grab hints of butter and a cake like feel. I’ll have to get some pancake batter next time I go shopping.

I’m pretty sure Teavivre sent me this as a sample a while ago. Using my gaiwan to do a few steeps. This stays rich in a reddish brown color through every steep. The flavor is pretty strong for only steeping it for 10 seconds at a time. The flavors are earthy, a touch of leather, and a touch of sweetness with hints of mushroom.

Dear Steepster,
I miss logging my teas everyday. And miss reading other people’s notes. I wish I just had a computer that worked so I wouldn’t have to log everything on my phone.. Ugh.

Anyways, I had this tea with breakfast and it was delicious as expected. Light, sweet melon flavors mixed with sweet white tea. Yum :-)

Sil

we miss you too!

Got a nice box full of new teas to try! This one was in it and I really wanted to try it. Steeping it gong fu style. The aria of the wet leaves is amazing. It’s sweet and spicy with pine and herb notes. The first steep kind of tastes like lightly sugared warm water. The second steep has a nice piney spice with a touch of sweetness. There is almost a soft ginger taste to it. The third steep lost a little of the spice and is turning a bit sweeter. I think I may have under leafed. Next time I will try adding a little more :)

Enjoyed this gongfu style :3 I did 10 steeps. I love this tea. It’s sweet, floral, fruity, and smooth. One of my favorite oolongs :)

This was my second experience with sheng. The first time scared me out of trying it again for a minute. I started with a rinse and then did 5-10s infusions in my gongfu. The flavor is nice. It’s sweet and has a slight bitterness to it.

Bio

I love camping, longboarding, listening to and making music, hiking, yoga, cooking, the color blue, The Beatles, and of course the wonderful world of tea!
My journey with tea started about a year and a half ago. Since then I’ve learned a lot and that my favorites include oolongs, pu-erhs, and silver needle. I love a good dessert tea but I have found recently that I’m craving pure teas more and more! I look forward to learning a lot more from my fellow Steepsters :]
